If you buy one changing the plug might not be the way ahead ,if its rated 110v  ,the element in the heat gun could possible melt as well as the displays ,just my take on it ,I could be wrong of course .

Aghhhhhh...dont go plugging 110v into 220v outlets.  Buy the proper kit.


Soldering irons and heat guns (usually sold as temperature controlled solder stations) are not costly, probably hit.you fifty or sixty quid, and they will last you a long, long time.
